“Shrinking budgets. Increasing class sizes. Government mandates. The challenges of delivering quality education are daunting. There is help. It’s the PTA.
… PTA addresses issues that are important to parents and public school administrators. We fight for full funding, quality teachers, and capabilities for schools to thrive. If your school or district does not have a PTA, now is the time. Membership is open to everyone. Your PTA is autonomous but supported by a national structure. It sets its own dues.”
(as noted and best described by the National PTA website) – HERE
With the above mentioned we cannot stress enough how important and necessary that every year we fill every mandatory PTA Board position to ensure an optimized and well functioning team.
Our current open positions are:
- Vice President
Also please note we also have Committee Positions:
- Health and Safety
- Sponsorship & Community Fundraising
- Movies and Main Events
- Hospitality/Staff Related
- Restaurant Nights
- Box Tops
- Communications/Web/Social Media
- eScrips/Passive Fundraising
Some of these key roles are limited to a 2 year term, therefor we need to ensure our Jonas Salk families are aware and get the opportunity to hold a position. These are your child(rens) initial years of public education. Our community has many parents who have the awesome skill-sets or desire to build these skill-sets for these open positions! It’s such a great opportunity to play an integral role in molding your kid(s) elementary school experience!
As with fairly new programs and our site near completing its 4th school year ever… we are going through some growing pains. Lessons are learned as we go and we continually strive to improve on these so that we build a standardized program that will only get better and better each year. Our deadline for this years’ nominations/elections is tomorrow, Friday, 3/1/19.
We need you Jonas Salk Elementary families! Take a chance on making a huge difference on the lives of not just your children, but all of our Jonas Salk Elementary kids! Join us. Put your name in for consideration for the 2019-2020 school year.
